Tackling neck pain

Tackling neck pain

Don't let a sore neck get you down with these ailments.

Tackling neck pain

A sore neck can really affect your comfort level and mood. Inflammation or injury to the bones and muscles of the neck can cause stiffness, aching and sharp pains. Usually neck pain isn’t serious and will go away with a little rest or added help. If you find yourself suffering from ongoing neck pain, you should seek medical attention.

Causes of neck pain

The most common cause of neck pain is poor posture. If you work at a desk for most of the day and don’t change position very often, you risk hurting the neck. Sleeping with your neck in a bad position can also cause neck pain, as does jerking it when exercising.

Treatments

There are several at-home treatments you can try to alleviate neck pain. The application of cold and hot packs can relieve pain, and gentle neck stretches may also help. Even laying off the exercise for a day or two can make a big difference. Other things you can try include sleeping with a neck pillow, relaxing in a hot bath, and taking over-the-counter pain relief tablets. If you don’t like medication from the doctor, acupuncture is a good option to try first.
